The Aquis farm colour-bearer Anders is hardly recognisable from the horse that took five starts to break his maiden
With Aquis Farm’s champion Not A Single Doubt colt Farnan waiting in the wings, they have a more than able deputy in another son of Not A Single Doubt, the glorious chestnut Anders who turned a competitive looking Listed The Rosebud at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday into a walk in the park.
The striking Not A Single Doubt colt Anders has carried the hopes of his stable from the time he lined up for his first start back in October, but he has proved to be something of a frustrating character.
Some people may have wondered at Coolmore’s Tom Magnier paying $500,000 for a Zoustar colt early in the sale at Magic Millions on Wednesday, but when you hear what his breeder John North of Bowness Stud has to say about him you can see why this colt is seen as having serious potential.
The Toby and Trent Edmonds-trained Queen Kay defeated her better-fancied stablemate Smart 'N' Sexy in Saturday’s $125,000 Aquis Gold Pearl Quality at the Gold Coast, which was not just a blow to punters but looks to have cost the runner-up a spot in next week’s Magic Millions 2yo Classic.  
Widden Stud bred Stratum Star was a $165,000 Magic Millions graduate from the 2013 Gold Coast Sale and 2020 will see the first of his progeny to grace sale rings around Australia.
Exciting Australian sire Zoustar will head the roster at Tweenhills Stud in Gloucestershire next year when he makes his second shuttle trip from Widden Stud to the northern hemisphere.
Stakes-placed earlier this year in Adelaide, three year-old Zoustar filly Sisstar has taken a little longer to hit winning form than her famous older sister Sunlight, but she claimed a valuable Black Type success at Flemington on Oaks Day when leading all the way to win the Group III VRC Red Roses Stakes (1100m).
Talented Zoustar mare Madam Rouge has been knocking on the door of a Black Type win for some time now with four previous seconds in stakes races before casting off the bridesmaid tag on Saturday at Randwick with a tenacious victory in the Group III ATC Nivison Stakes (1200m).
Ian Smith of Edinburgh Park was making news earlier this week for his stance on thoroughbred welfare (read about it here), but one of his horses carrying the IKS brand that won’t be returning home any time soon is talented sprinter Chicago Cub, who won his third race at Geelong on Wednesday.
Zoustar’s champion mare Sunlight was in hot form at Flemington on Saturday winning the Group II VRC Gilgai Stakes as her lead up to the $14million Everest, but she wasn’t the only Group winner on the card by Widden Stud’s young super sire.
Epsom Handicap day at Randwick with the first look at the new-season two-year-olds, a full card of nine stakes races on Turnbull Stakes day at Flemington and one of the great days of world racing at Longchamp featuring the incomparable Enable in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, this is as close as it gets to racing nirvana.
Quality mare Mizzy spent much of her two and three year-old season playing the bridesmaid, but since turning four it’s been all blue sky for the daughter of Zoustar, who has reeled off three successive wins in Group races, the latest coming at Rosehill on Saturday when she scored a blazing win in the Group II ATC Golden Pendant Stakes.
Stakes-placed earlier this year in Adelaide, three year-old Zoustar filly Sisstar has taken a little longer to hit winning form than her famous older sister Sunlight, but a dominant victory at Flemington on Wednesday has her on track for a return to Black Type racing.

Stakes-placed earlier this year in Adelaide, three year-old Zoustar filly Sisstar was given an easy maiden assignment when resuming from a spell at Murray Bridge on Sunday and duly broke the ice with a resounding victory as a hot favourite.
Fourth in two Group I races during the autumn, Zoustar mare Mizzy has always threatened to win a stakes race and did so at Randwick on Saturday taking out the Group III ATC Toy Show Quality.
Zoustar was the leading sire of Australian three year-olds last season ahead of the likes of Snitzel, I Am Invincible, Redoute’s Choice and Fastnet Rock with a winning double for two of his Guineas nominated promising new crop of three year-olds at Geelong on Friday indicating further success is on the way.
Tony Gollan has been ever so patient with his talented Zoustar gelding Zoustyle, but the gloves might be about to come off with a nine length trial win at Doomben on Tuesday morning signalling a big campaign ahead.
